In fact, according to the artist, there is only a fragment of that enormous creative work, written for long and graceful years of life. Many works have long been stored in museum and private collections in Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Italy, France, Germany, etc.

“In Transcarpathian artists, the theme of landscapes is dominant, and I am not an exception to the rule,” the author himself said during the exhibition presentation. – I am a landscape painter from nature, I ride the places where paintings are written. For each picture, I will say not only the area in which it is written, but I will even show you the exact place. I really love Rakhiv, Volovets, Tyachiv regions – the Uzhotskyi pass and the ridge, but in general, everything is a favourite in Transcarpathia, wherever you go, you can draw everywhere!”

The Exhibition of Yosyp Babynets in the galley “Uzhhorod” will last until 18 February 2019.
